Prescription Only Medication (POM)
Testim gel 50g is a transdermal gel containing testosterone that can help increase libido in menopausal women. This pack contains 30 doses of 5g gel.
Testim is a topical gel containing testosterone, a male sex hormone. It is prescribed to those with low testosterone levels, going through menopause or have a condition called hypogonadism. Testosterone plays a key role in sexual development and function. Low testosterone can cause fatigue and low libido. This medication should only be used when prescribed by a doctor.
Testim Gel is prescribed to those who don’t produce enough testosterone naturally and need treatment to help increase it. The hormone gel is used by those who suffer with hypogonadism, have low libido, chronic fatigue, or are going through menopause. Your GP or pharmacist will need to assess your condition for you to access this medication.

It can also vary depending on the dosage instructions given to you by your GP or pharmacist. There is no ‘best’ testosterone gel treatment as each will be prescribed depending on the medication that’s available or what the clinician deems most suitable for the patient’s needs.
